Excellent Outcomes and Affordable Cost is assured.
Enlarged Prostate or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. It is often used interchangeably though incorrectly with another term – Benign Prostate Hypertrophy.
Prostate, a walnut shaped gland is a part of male reproductive system and is situated in front of the rectum and below the bladder. It surrounds the urethra.
This condition commonly affects the elderly male population above the age of 60 years and involves an increase in the number of cells of the prostate gland leading to its enlargement. The enlarged prostate gland compresses the urethra leading to interruption of normal urine flow leading to urinary retention.
Treatment Options for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia BPH Treatment
1) Minimally Invasive Techniques :
In this procedure, a radiopaque dye is injected into the vein of the leg after which an X-ray of the venous network is carried out (venography). Then a medicine that shrinks the blood vessels is injected into the vein (sclerotherapy) resulting in reduction of prostate volume. This provides relief in cases of nocturia, improves bladder emptying and increases urine outflow. There are minimum sideeffects as compared to traditional surgery.
- It is a very effective treatment in case of BPH and provides relief from lower urinary tract symptoms after a single procedure.
- It is a minimally invasive technique performed under local anesthesia.
- A special microwave urinary catheter is inserted through the urethra into the enlarged prostate. The microwave antennae are then heated up to at least 111 degree Fahrenheit which destroys the surrounding tissues.
- In this procedure low energy frequency radio energy is delivered through two needles placed inside the prostate by passing through the urethra, creating a high temperature in a small zone, which destroys the excessive prostatic tissue without damaging the urethra.
- The procedure is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. It is a single session treatment procedure with the number of needles varying with size of the prostate.
- It is fairly safe and effective and has minimal side-effects.
2) Surgical Procedures:
- It is the most popular method among patients and doctors for resolving prostate related problems and is considered after medical intervention fails.
- It involves removing whole or a portion of the prostate gland through the urethra.
- The patient can go home after 3-5 days. Patient is advised to drink lots of fluids and avoid any strenuous activity for a few days (maximum 6 weeks) till the scar heals.
- He is cured of the symptoms occurring due to urinary pathway obstruction like urinary incontinence, dribbling, nocturia etc.
- It is the traditional open surgery method used when TURP cannot be performed due to reasons like highly enlarged prostate or bladder injury etc.
- It is mainly indicated in prostate cancer but can also be done in cases of BPH.
- In case prostate cancer is suspected, then surrounding lymph nodes are also removed and sent for biopsy.
- The patient stays in the hospital for a week and is discharged with the urine catheter in place that has to be kept for 1-3 weeks’ time.

- Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a modern alternative to the standard Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) procedure for enlarged prostate BHP (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
- This is done under a general anaesthetic with the help of a telescopic camera inserted through the penis. A special instrument is also used which known as morcellator. Mocellator cuts the prostate tissue into fragments.
- It requires a short period of hospitalisation. A catheter (a tube which drains the bladder) is also needed for 1-2 days until the urine clears. It provides a good outcome as the entire portion of the prostate gland is removed.

Mr. Adedeji Iheanacho From Nigeria shares his Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer
To discover that I suffered from enlarged Prostate which had some cancer involvement was quite a shock for me just after I turned 55 years last December. I then went to the Internet and found this website Safemedtrip.com amongst several others. I sent e-mails of my reports with my specific problem outlined to three sites.
Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and walking unassisted and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on my feet. The staff at the hospital were all smiles and very helpful. I enjoyed all my meals during my stay. I would recommend anyone who needs a Prostate Surgery to go for the Robotic option, it is a bit expensive but the pay offs are superb – less pain, quick recovery and no fear of complications.
Thank you all and God bless you!
